While bulk copying datas from the notepad file to the database using "bcp in", i want to remove the first row (i.e, header part of the data file ). Please provide suggestions to write the format file such that header should not copied to the database.
Thanks in Advance,
Faizal Ahmed

use [-F firstrow] of bcp ie -F2

or FIRSTROW if using BULK INSERT

Many Thanks for ur reply

All,

I have tried using bcp command -F 2 , but this command is ignoring header part along with first data row also.Provide me solution such that only header part should be ignored but not first data row.

Thanks in advance

Curious

I have used those parameters for such a purpose without any problems.

Can you post your data structure, sample data and the format file

In my Data file column fields like edom,rdom and gfcid dont have any values and the format file is expecting three tabs and two tabs whenever the field name occurs ... I have found out the cause of the problem also . Please help me in changing the format file such that only header part should be skipped without a loss in the data .

Thanks in advance,
Faizal

Based on your data your format file should be this

1 SQLCHAR 0 4 "\t" 1 mis_year SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
2 SQLCHAR 0 2 "\t" 2 mis_month SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
3 SQLCHAR 0 5 "\t" 3 misref SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
4 SQLCHAR 0 5 "\t" 4 template SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
5 SQLCHAR 0 6 "\t" 5 costcode SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
6 SQLCHAR 0 0 "\t" 0 edom SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
7 SQLCHAR 0 0 "\t" 0 rdom SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
8 SQLCHAR 0 2 "\t" 6 country SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
9 SQLCHAR 0 1 "\t" 7 branch SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
10 SQLCHAR 0 6 "\t" 8 base SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
11 SQLCHAR 0 0 "\t" 0 gfcid SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
12 SQLCHAR 0 6 "\t" 9 subprod SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
13 SQLCHAR 0 3 "\t" 10 misccy SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

17 SQLCHAR 0 9 "\t" 14 rev SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
18 SQLCHAR 0 1 "\r" 15 pool SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

and this in conjunction with the -F2 parameter to bcp
